Residential park resident concessions

ConcessionsSA is receiving a high number of applications and enquiries, causing longer than usual processing times.

If you applied or have been in contact with us, we’ll get to you as soon as possible.

To apply for the concessions for residential parks residents, scan and email your completed application to concessions@sa.gov.au. Processing delays will apply to applications received by post.

People who live in a residential or caravan park may be eligible to receive a single combined concession to help with their energy, water and sewerage bills. They may also be eligible to receive the Cost of Living Concession.

No Emergency Services Levy (fixed property) concession is payable, as this levy is not normally charged to residents of residential parks.
